Andrea was exposed to the world of writing early in life. From as far back as she can remember, her mother always had a novel in the works. They often discussed plot twists and characters together, and although her mother never published, she passed her love of the craft onto Andrea.
Writing has since become a part of her everyday life. Andrea has published an academic textbook and written for local magazines and newspapers. She is a veteran of the United States Army and a graduate of Airborne School. Her service as a Military Police Officer led her to a career with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Within this agency, she held a variety of positions which allowed her to live and work in different parts of the country. She currently resides in Charleston, West Virginia with her husband and three sons. PAWN OF THE GODS is her first full-length novel.
